Reggie Wilkie was a flame of Betty Eagleton, the pair re-encountering each other when Reggie is hired as a magician at the Christmas show in December 1999. Reggie tried to win Betty back by destroying her relationship with Seth Armstrong, to Betty's dismay. It transpired that Reggie once dated Betty in the early 1950s and he got her pregnant but when Betty went to tell him, she found him in bed with another woman, and that Betty had an abortion, yet she never told anyone about this. Reggie tried to blackmail Betty but she told Seth herself. Reggie only succeeded in infuriating Seth and forced him to leave.
